A Gillette woman who says police tackled her and used a stun gun on her after finding her 12-year-old son driving in the middle of the night is suing the city and its police department.
The Gillette News Record reported Monday that April J. Fox claims the officers came into her house with her son in November 2011, woke her up and refused numerous demands to leave. She says they tackled her even though she didn’t pose any threat to them and wrongly arrested her.
Fox filed a governmental claim seeking compensation but no settlement negotiations took place. City Attorney Charlie Anderson said officials are investigating the matter.
Sounds like there’s some pieces missing to this story. Like why the police entered the house in the first place instead of just ringing the door bell & waiting for the mother to answer the door so they could explain why they had her son with them. SMH.
